UPDATE 11/11 at 1:49 p.m.: According to the Philly 10K’s Facebook page, they’ve moved to a new registration company better equipped to handle the flood of folks trying to register for the race, and they’ll be reopening registration at 8 p.m. tonight. There are 2,500 spots left, and they will post the registration link on their Facebook page (here) shortly before 8 p.m. Good luck, runners! 

UPDATE 11/11 at 11:55 a.m.: If you were able to register for the Philly 10K this morning, consider yourself lucky. According to an email the Philly 10K just sent out, registration is on pause due to technical difficulties. They’ll be sending out an email later on when registration opens back up, and we’ll be sure to keep you all in the loop! You can check out the email below.

ORIGINAL: Listen up, runners! If you’re looking to snag a spot in this year’s Philly 10K, going down August 30th, time to hop on over to the race’s website and get your registration on, because registration is officially open! And, trust us, you are not going to want to drag your feet on this one — last year, the race sold out in a very fast 70 minutes. Go here to register.

Last week, we gave you guys all the details about the neighborhood-centric race, but if you need a quick refresher: This year the 6.2-mile race will kick off at 8th and South Street and finish back on South Street (you can see the course map here) with a giant festival, complete with a beer garden, free Philadelphia Brewing Company beer and Shake Shack custard for runners (Mmmmm), and a Philly-focused vendor area. Yeah, it’s going to be the bomb.

This year, like last, we’ve partnered up with Philly Runner as the race’s official media partner (yes, we’re excited, too), so you can count on getting lots more coverage on insider news about the race, events surrounding the race, and more in the coming weeks and months.

But back to registration: It’ll run you $62, and I am guessing bibs are going to go like hot cakes, so what are you waiting for? Get your registration on now!
